In this short video, Mohamed Hoblos sat down with various teenage High School boys to share with them his biggest High School regret. It all started when a schoolboy brought in a brand new phone in hopes of gaining the attention and respect of his classmates. Allah ﷻ commands the believers to be persistently standing firm for justice, even in situations where it may be against themselves. This incident is a pertinent reminder of this invaluable Islamic principle in a real-life situation.
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” Quran 4:135
May Allah make us of those who uphold the truth.
